Juventus GM Beppe Marotta stands by his summer market campaign.
The Bianconeri brought in no fewer than 10 new players in a comprehensive overhaul, which also saw the likes of Diego and David Trezeguet leave.
"We have realised the guide lines," Marotta said. "It was a difficult transfer market for everybody. The cash in circulation revealed itself to be scarce.
"We have used the loan-with-an-option-to-buy formula a lot, but so did everyone a little.
"I ask the fans for a little patience, but I can assure you that the club is strong. It has a notable sense of belonging and continuity, represented by the arrival of Andrea Agnelli and there are good prospects because the team is strong."
